In response to my good friend Dustin’s “Makeout Mixtape” post …..
This year, I’m single on V-Day. Or as I like to call it “Reminder of your lack of relationship day”. But the topic of Valentine’s day got me thinking about love and romance. Then my gutter-mind trailed off, remembering past (epic) makeouts, and the music that brought up intense passion.
Yes, I said passion. You know you got excited about that. It’s ok; savour it. In fact, have a listen to my Makeout Mix, imagine yourself in a dimly lit bedroom with a babe of a new flame, and imagine that it’s your first electric gravitational makeout together.
*Excuse me while I take a time out*
Kiss Me – Ed Sheeran
Wow, I can’t even go back to the memories of this one without needing a cigarette. I think makeouts are the most intense when you’ve got a smooth, breathy love song in the background… Start off slow
Boy With a Coin – Iron and Wine
It’s flowy, it’s breathy, and it’s perfect for making out
Skinny Love – Birdy
This is a cover of the Bon Iver song. But I like this one wayyyyy better. It’s so…. *shiver*
Scream – Kerri Hilson, Nicole Scherzinger, Timbaland
1:55 – 2:10, nuff said
I Know What You Want – Busta Rhymes and Mariah Carey
I don’t know if I should even say this…. But it’s MY blog, so I will. This one reminds me of a cute emo/punk boy, paired with post-adolescent substance-fuelled grinding. Plus they mention Scully & Mulder, and I have THE HUGEST crush on Agent Fox Mulder. Double whammy!
I Hate College – Sam Adams
This one helps me imagine that I ever went to college, and lived in residence. I always had this incredibly fun and sexy fantasy of what living in res would be like for me at the fresh age of 18. Alas, I backpacked Australia instead. Very fun, very sexy, very educational, but I still hold that college fantasy world near and dear to my heart. This song takes me there, and in that universe, I’m rocking the uni life with cute co-eds, living the dream.
212 – Azealia Banks
Haha…. Ughhh…. It’s just so raunchy!! Perfect for one of those spontaneous, cheeky, we-shouldn’t-do-this, slap-me kind of makeout. I don’t know about you, but this video makes me want to party… and swear.
Pony – Ginuwine
A long-time sexy favorite. And then Magic Mike came out, and it amped up an extra notch for me. *stares off into memory lane and visualizes Channing Tatum on stage*
So that’s my Makeout Mix! What do you think? Over the top? Too tame? Too wild?
